John Lewis 2016 Christmas Advert Remix

Throughout one of my MSc modules this year I have been challenged to produce a series of short videos as a means of becoming more engaged with social media. My first attempt was a mobile video that provided a brief insight into my electronic music production approach when using Ableton Live. The finished video can be seen here:

My second clip is a simple remix of the new John Lewis Christmas advert, which was released in the early hours of this morning (10th November). I have replaced the original audio with a song named ‘Nightfall/Love Theme’, written by one of my favourite producers, Jon Hopkins. I feel the song is a great fit as a narrative tool for the adverts storyline, and serves as a good alternative to the original audio.

The original video can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sr6lr_VRsEo
